GrafTech eGraf HITHERM

Engineers are being required to design smaller and with longer life. HITHERM is an essential thermal interface material for any engineer’s tool-kit. With best-in-class through-plane thermal conductivity, up to 16 W/m-K, thicknesses as thin as 0.005” and NASA outgassing certification it maintains thermal performance indefinitely.

HITHERM graphite thermal interface materials(TIMs) provide a solution for long-life, zero maintenance applications with extreme heat cycles. HITHERM’s flexible graphite are the ideal thermal management solution for today’s demanding power electronics and lighting.

  • Consistent, reliable thermal performance enabling zero maintenance applications
  • Will not flow or pump out under any thermal extremes, thermal cycles, or part orientation
  • Assembly-ready foil form factor eliminates dispensing and cleaning processes
  • NASA outgassing certified
  • Silicone-free graphite material eliminates risk of clouding LED optics
  • RoHS compliant and UL 94 V0 Listed
  • Lighting applications
  • Electronics
  • Area where heat needs to be transferred to a frame, chassis, or other type of heat spreader
  • Applications with limited space for thermal management materials
  • Between heat-generating components and a heat sink
